The Big Walk, which is the biggest walking event in KZN, was not held from 2020 to 2022, due to the pandemic. The theme for this year's event is 'Here with you, every step of the way', which underscores East Coast Radio and Suncoast’s commitment to the KZN community.
The Suncoast East Coast Radio Big Walk aims to bring families and friends together to create memorable experiences. The event will start at uShaka Marine World, continue past Suncoast and end at Moses Mabhida (People's Park). Participants can choose between the 5km and 10km routes, and can purchase tickets online at www.ecr.co.za or www.suncoastcasino.co.za.
Suncoast’s director of operations and complex general manager, Adam MacIntyre, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership with the event. “We are thrilled to be a part of KZN’s biggest family walk. At Suncoast, the event epitomises a sense of community and belonging which supports Suncoast’s vision of being Durban’s most loved entertainment destination. We are looking forward to a fun-filled day.”
Meanwhile, ECR's managing director, Boni Mchunu, is thrilled that the family-friendly event is back, adding that the Suncoast East Coast Radio Big Walk will unite and encourage attendees from all parts of KZN.
"We are delighted to have contributed to the rebuilding and sustenance of our province during these challenging times over the past three years. We believe that the return of the Big Walk, a family-friendly event, will foster unity and encourage attendees from all corners of KZN. We look forward to seeing KZN families walking the most beautiful promenade with us."
